Used test: Jaguar I-Pace vs Tesla Model 3 verdict

You can save more than £20,000 on these desirable electric cars if you buy them at three years old, but which is the better option?...

Jaguar I-Pace vs Tesla Model 3 rear

Our verdict

The Jaguar I-Pace and Tesla Model 3 are two of the most well-rounded electric cars you can buy, with good real-world ranges and equipment levels. Spoiler alert, both are five-star used buys. But if you want the classier, more conventional interior and slightly more passenger space, the I-Pace is the way to go. 

That's not to say it's our winner, mind you. The Model 3, with its superior performance, handling and charging speeds, is the more impressive vehicle overall. It's also the more confidence-inspiring buy, thanks to a better reliability record. It takes the top spot.
